Definitely let your neighbour know what you plan to do. I was planning to remove a hedge and replace it with fencing as the hedge was way past its best and had basically opened up along the top. The neighbour couldn't physically see the problem 'coz he's only a little fella, but it was really annoying me.
I told him what I wanted to do and he was over the moon. I hadn't realised how far the top had 'opened' over his garden, and he hadn't wanted to say anything! Result we are both happy, and have more garden to work with.
